Cabinet Interventions for Glasgow International

Taking place at

Greater Glasgow & The Clyde Valley

Dates between

20 Apr - 7 May


Glasgow International is Scotland's largest festival for contemporary art, taking place over three weeks every two years across the city of Glasgow. Renowned as a centre for contemporary art, the festival draws on the city's strengths as a vibrant and distinctive centre of artistic production and display.

Combining the characteristics of a visual arts biennial with an open submission model for artists and curators based in the city, Glasgow International is a truly unique event in the European cultural calendar.

The art exhibition Cabinet Interventions, which is included in the Glasgow International 2018 programme, is a collaboration between ten artists and the National Trust for Scotland interrogating the role of material culture in defining place. In post-Brexit Scotland, how might often-contested identities and histories be articulated through institutions such as the National Trust for Scotland?

In 2017 the artists spent time in residence at Pollok House, exploring the cultural, political, historical, ecological and sensorial context of the site.

This exhibition draws upon that research and dialogue to present sound, film, sculpture, text and performance and features the work of: Ruth Barker, Jasper Coppes, Alan Currall, Sarah Forrest, Susan Brind, Jim Harold, Shona Macnaughton, Duncan Marquiss, Shauna McMullan, and Joanna Peace

Dates: Friday 20 April - Monday 7 May
